Aramaic Mid-Term

March 10, 2008 at 3:01 pm (Education)

We just finished taking our Aramaic mid-term. *phew* I’m fairly certain that I’ll score at least an A-, which is saying something considering 2 weeks ago I was positive I’d get no better than a C. Now that we’re done with this, no more reproducing paradigms! The final is just translation. Calvin suggested having a little ceremony out on the lawn in front of the Academic building where we could burn the paradigms note cards we made, one by one, but I vetoed that idea!

Though I disagree pedagogically with how the class is being taught, I have to say that I feel like I have learned Aramaic, which is definitely a good thing. Next semester….Ugaritic!

    Actually, I suggested burning the note cards one by one while chanting the professor’s name. I thought it would make for a jovial time. Alas, my wife is a prude with no sense of humor. 😉
